On my Aug. 2005 4003MG, the binding on both sides of the first fret feels rough. Also the finish on the fretboard, on the first fret also feels uneven. Looks to have ripples (for lack of a better word) in it. Also, the bottom horn feels as if some of the finish is missing on the end, but 90 degree angles must be hard to do. Could this be a problem in the future?

Funny, I have a midnight blue 4003 from around august (july maybe) 2005 and have several finish problems- bubbling paint, discoloration, blue-ing binding. I don't figure that it's worth my time to send it in for refinishing now though, so I'm planning on waiting until (if) it gets really bad. Personally I don't care too much about finishes in general, but come on Rickenbacker, I'd rather have the finish that's on my MIM telecaster, it holds up at least, and has fewer flaws.

if it is under warranty then contact Ric ... if not get a car polish ... the mild abrasive in the polish may smooth it out ... I use carnauba wax on my basses ...
